D.C. Statehood Green Party

  • Straight Talk !

The Issues

Education - Full funding to public schools, UDC, libraries, and recreation centers.

Health Care - Restore D.C. General Hospital; guarantee quality public health care for all D.C. residents regardless of income or employment status.

Social Services - Make real our public obligation to care for the less fortunate, including services for the homeless, the mentally disabled, the chemically addicted, prison inmates and former inmates, nursing home residents, people with AIDS, and children in foster care; restore basic constituent services in all wards.

Labor - Pass a living wage law for D.C. and protect workers' right to organize.

Civil Rights - Zero tolerance for harassment and civil rights violations; civilian oversight of police conduct; the right to vote in local elections for all residents regardless of U.S. citizenship status.

Reparations - Enact a local reparations bill to address injustices perpetrated by the vestiges of slavery.

Environment - Stop the asthma epidemic in D.C. kids by enforcing compliance with clean air laws; research and community outreach to identify areas most in need of mitigation; expand public transit, bicycle lanes, recycling and composting; preserve D.C.'s biodiversity and green space.

Economic Development - Tax relief for low- and middle-income working people; repeal the Tax Parity Act; public funding for human needs, not stadiums and Olympics.

Housing - Expand affordable housing, including subsidization programs, tenant and emergency assistance, rent control, and home ownership incentives.

Democracy - Full legislative, budgetary and judicial autonomy; strong local campaign finance laws; implement the progressive representation systems that most other democracies in the world have, such as proportional representation and instant runoff voting.

Statehood - D.C. must and will get Statehood, but only if we are forceful and unyielding in our demand for it!
